*** And what about the robbers themselves? '''You’d think:''' Having seamlessly pulled all of this off (see the entry in CriminalDoppelganger), they would leave it at that and just hightail it out of town before anyone caught on. '''Instead:''' They bring the boys to their lair, where the imposter reveals himself and shows them where Rosco is being held. Imagine how pissed off ''Rosco'' was.

* ''Series/Arrow'':
* While Arrow has its fair moments, this one stands out. So in Season 3, it seems that the Arrow (Really Ra's Al Ghul) has started killing again, Quentin Lance (Who recently stopped working with the Arrow [[LockedOutOfTheLoop due to him not being told of]] [[spoiler: Sara's death]]) orders a manhunt on the Arrow. Reasonable enough right ''now'', right? So during this manhunt and killing spree, the Arrow repeatedly tells any and all of his lawful enemies that the killer is actually an impostor from a really evil group. Okay, so might want to think about that for a little while, considering what's been happening for the last few years, but the Arrow might be lying just to save his ass, so let's continue our nice little manhunt. But then, [[spoiler: Quentin is kidnapped by a group of dark and cryptic individuals, who tell him that Oliver Queen is the Arrow, and that Sara was with him on Lian Yu.]]\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That Quentin would realize that this group of dark and cryptic individuals are probably not just telling him all this out of their natural sense of justice, call off the manhunt, and talk to Oliver about all of this, in a ''calm'', ''mature'' conversation.\\
'''Or Maybe:''' If he truly cannot get over his anger, realize that A. He probably isn't all that rational right now, with the whole bomb of [[spoiler: Sara being dead]] on him, and take a better look at all the evidence or B. See that he honestly has an ''incredibly flimsy'' case, previously tried to implicate Oliver and failed, and has no real testimony admissible in court ("I was told by a group of people in dark hooded gear with weapons that Oliver Queen [[Who has to have a large amount do enemies who are rich enough to hire mercenaries, and everyone knows Quentin hates]] is the Arrow [[Which pretty much is the same, only a ''much'' larger group and enemies who have weapons on their own]]")\\
'''Instead:''' Blinded by his hatred for Oliver, Quentin becomes a [[TookALevelInJerkass total dick]] who turns the manhunt UpToEleven and is responsible for [[spoiler: Roy having to fake being the Arrow to get Oliver out, being thrown into prison and faked his death]] and [[spoiler: Pushing Oliver into becoming the next leader of the League of Assassins.]]\\

** And what about the robbers themselves? '''You’d think:''' Having seamlessly pulled all of this off (see the entry in CriminalDoppelganger), they would leave well enough alone and just hightail it out of town before anyone caught on. '''Instead:''' They bring the boys to their lair, where Woody reveals himself. And when Rosco himself finds out the truth? Not. Pretty.

''You'd Expect''': That either Cersei would decide to be pragmatic, and also keep her son happy since [[spoiler:Tommen is HappilyMarried to Margaery at the tender age of fourteen]]. Alternatively, Olenna realizes that Cersei isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, given Cersei was stupid enough to [[spoiler:charge Tyrion for Joffrey's murder when Olenna did the deed]], and has delusions of being powerful.\\

** Ned has just sussed out the secret that got his mentor, Jon Arryn, killed and someone tried to kill his son to protect. Namely that [[spoiler:the king's son and heir was sired by the queen's twin brother.]]\\
'''You'd Expect''': Since he knows people have killed for this secret, he'd keep a lid on it until King Robert gets back, then tell him in private and let him handle it.\\

to:

** Ned has just sussed out the secret that got his mentor, Jon Arryn, killed and someone tried to kill his son to protect. Namely that [[spoiler:the king's son and heir was sired by the queen's twin brother.]] Also King Robert [[spoiler:has a reputation for killing anyone that poses even a mere threat, like Daenaerys.]]\\
'''You'd Expect''': Since he knows people have killed for this secret, he'd keep a lid on it until King Robert gets back, then tell him in private and let him handle it.\\ Alternatively, he tells King Robert to [[spoiler:make a vow to not hurt the children, and remind him to be an honorable kind.]]\\



** At the Purple Wedding, [[spoiler:Joffrey starts choking. It takes a few moments for everyone to realize that he's been poisoned, and he's dying. While doing so, he points at Tyrion, who comes to examine the wineglass.]]\\
'''You'd Expect''': That someone would use their head. As Tyrion lampshades, [[spoiler:if he had poisoned Joffrey, he wouldn't have been stupid enough to stand in front of him and examine his wineglass. Also, there is no poison on him, and he hasn't had an opportunity to drop something in the drink.]]\\
'''Instead''': No one uses common sense to [[spoiler:defend Tyrion, not even his brother. Cersei gets to carry on a KangarooCourt trial which is damnably convincing due to a SurpriseWitness taking Tyrion's remarks out of context. As a result, Tyrion decides to no longer help his family after he's sentenced to death, murders Tywin, and leaves Westeros on getting the opportunity. This means that [[NiceJobFixingItVillain thanks to Cersei]], Dany has the smartest Lannister as a right hand man, and a power struggle ensues because no one can keep the realm together.]]



'''Instead''': While he ''does'' [[spoiler: win the duel and kill Oberyn]], he also shouts very loudly that he did exactly what Oberyn's accused him of. While in front of a crowd of [=VIPs=] including more than a few of the Martell family's servants and sworn lords. And the Martells are a powerful family that the Lannisters desperately need at least neutral in Westeros affairs while Gregor is just a useful killer. Really, even if Oberyn [[spoiler: hadn't poisoned Gregor with one of his weapons and gotten in several life threatening wounds]], Gregor would still definitely [[spoiler: be facing death one way or another]].

Also, thanks to Gregor, [[spoiler:Elaria Sand has sufficient reason to murder Myrcela in revenge later on, in front of Jaime no less when he was coming to "rescue" her from the Martells.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Littlefinger has [[spoiler:set his sights on Sansa now that Cat is dead, and spirits her away to the Vale. After her aunt tries to kill her, if not for Petyr's interference, Sansa decides to put her trust in Littelfinger. As she tells him, he's the only person who has tried to keep her alive and safe, apart from Tyrion who has been locked up. Joffrey has abused her, Cersei has bullied her, and Lysa has attempted to murder her. The Tyrells and Baratheons have failed to offer any help.]]\\
'''You'd Expect''': For Littlefinger to do what he did in the books: [[spoiler:keep Sansa at his side in the vale and out of the game for as long as he can, while educating her in its fine arts. That way he has a successor, and the perfect ReplacementGoldfish for Cat.]]\\
'''Instead''': Littlefinger [[spoiler:sells Sansa in marriage to Ramsay Snow. Ramsay proceeds to lock her up, rape her, and destroy any hope she has of escaping. While Sansa escapes thanks to a regretful Theon "Reek" Greyjoy, she refuses to trust Littlefinger and says that he was either an idiot for not knowing about Ramsay being a monster, or her enemy for knowing and hatching the scheme anyway. While she reluctantly accepts his army in the subsequent battle against Ramsay, his chances of being with Sansa are shot with Jon as her new ally, and with her newfound capacity for cruelty.]]
** For financial reasons, the Tyrells and Lannisters have allied in a political match, with [[spoiler:Margaery eventually becoming Tommen's bride.]] Olenna nevertheless wants to keep her grandchildren and son safe, and keeps sending hints to Cersei that she will go MamaBear if the occasion calls for it. Also, the Lannisters need the Tyrells' funds.\\
''You'd Expect''': That either Cersei would decide to be pragmatic, and also keep her son happy since [[spoiler:Tommen is HappilyMarried to Margaery at the tender age of fourteen]]. Alternatively, Olenna realizes that Cersei isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, given Cersei was stupid enough to [[spoiler:charge Tyrion for Joffrey's murder when Olenna did the deed]], and has delusions of being powerful.\\
'''Instead''': Neither party thinks this far ahead. As a result, [[spoiler:Cersei sets the High Sparrow on Margaery and Loras, earns the Sparrow's wrath when her cousin confesses to sleeping with her, and later on kills the Sparrows and the Tyrells, except Olenna, at her "trial". Tommen also kills himself when he sees the fire and realizes his wife is dead. Olenna becomes a DeathSeeker and allies with Dany to declare war once and for all on Queen Cersei, without thoughts of survival.]]

'''Instead''': In an effort to "spare the children", Ned tells [[spoiler:Queen Cersei]] that he knows and advises her to vamoose before Robert returns, expecting her to be shamed into leaving. Unfortunately for him, Robert returns with [[spoiler:a fatal hunting wound]], leaving Ned unwilling to tell him the truth. What follows is a series of LawfulStupid decisions, ultimately leading to [[spoiler: Ned's execution at the hands of one of the "children" he tried to spare.]]

* ''Series/AllMyChildren'': Adam Chandler disapproves of ex-wife Dixie's behavior--sleeping around, and her latest conquest is the 18-year-old Brian--and starts making plans to file for full custody of their son. Adam's daughter Haley--Brian's ex-girlfriend--tries to warn Dixie about this.
'''You'd Expect''': Dixie to cool it with Brian, especially since she knows full well how ruthless Adam can be (he once had her declared insane and committed to a mental hospital)
